Agree CP, but the problem with shit or bust approach is it leaves us where we've been for years with no long term plan.

I can understand Bruce's approach but he'll get it more right by keeping the youngsters involved so we bring them on as well.


I share your concerns, Michael. I think this is where a director of football would help.

If things go badly this season, Brucey is getting the chop and then we need another two transfer windows to reshape the squad to the new manager's liking.

Getting relegated was a disaster for the club but it was the opportunity to rebuild the squad with young, dynamic players who could develop into something special. We should be building for the next six years, not just for the next six months.


This is where we see Steve Round in his element I guess alongside Bruce, yeah more than get the sense Col of shit or bust this season and the ramifications for Bruce if we start badly, I just want that element of the future there because we've been so insular as a club for so long and that's caused it's own problems.

There's a sense to promotion squad, survival squad, then growth squad but the more strands of a long term plan we can have in the promotion squad surely serves us better.

Personally even If it starts badly you stick with the manager for the season, last season save the shitty Christmas run we would have made the play off's. I don't see a run that bad again so fully expect Villa to be near the top of the table for the duration of the coming season.
